in the house tomorrow that would allow us to raise the debt ceiling. republicans said they didn't want to do that without cutting back spending. the president didn't want the two linked and republicans apparently have relinquished that threat and pushed for the raising the debt ceiling temporarily into the spring to pay bills. they also say if either chamber doesn't come up with a permanent budget, that chamber, either the house or senate, the lawmakers won't get paid. we'll see how that vote goes later today. the president laid out a number of things including climate change, gay rights, health care immigration, and it remains to be seen how much of that they will be able to tackle in the second term. >> he better eat his wheaties. time to get done. thank you very much. >>> happening now, fire crews are battling to contain a fire at beale air force base about 50 miles north of sacramento. the fire has been burning for hours. this is what it looked like just last night. firefighters say they now have the fire about 75% contained. it broke out about 2:30 yesterday afternoon inside a building
